I always struggle when I shop for my 5 year old daughter. When I hit the High Street I become increasingly frustrated with the tat that is on offer. Why do retailers subject us to Hello Kitty? Do people really buy it? I’m always on a quest for good quality clothes, simplistic but still with a hint of style.
I tend to find myself, when shopping online, leaning towards Swedish Clothing companies for kids. They seem to have just what I’m looking for; quality and style. Two of my favourites are Polarn O. Pyret and Me & I.
I don’t mind paying a bit more for quality.
Last week, during school holidays we went to Butterfly World which is local to us. Madame, insisted that she
“needed something bright to wear so that the butterflies would be attracted to her”
She chose the Big Flowers Tunic from Me & I. Which made perfect sense, butterflies like flowers, right?
Another added bonus, when eating chocolate the tunic is rather forgiving and hides some of the mess.
With spring teasing us, I had a little play with putting together an outfit based on the Tunic. This season calls for layering. The jacket and shoes are from Vertbaudet, another favourite and the leggings are from Polarn. However, it was a bit of a dream as the outfit would cost about £100 and I can’t justify spending that much on a 5-year old. I’m not known for my fashion sense but what do you reckon?
Disclosure: The Tunic was compliments of Me & I.
